Much ado about nothing. That is the best way to sum up the last few months where Donald Trump is concerned.
Following the lead of Mike Huckabee over the weekend, today The Donald announced that he would not be running for office.
On our April 14 episode of “The Plain, Hard Truth BlogTalkRadio Show” we discussed Donald Trump and his possible run for office. In this conversation we discussed whether or not he was a serious candidate or if this was just another way to strum up publicity for his next reality show.
I said that it is really hard to take someone seriously whose tag-line is, “You’re Fired!” I also said it was hard to take someone seriously who has as much money as Donald Trump has, yet his hair looks the way it does!
On to the more serious note and purpose of this article- you have got to be kidding me! We have wasted precious time talking about this man who is just another narcissistic, pompous jerk. Why in the world would you talk the way you have talked for months now if you are not going to run?
Please don’t get me wrong- I was never a fan of having “The Donald” on the ballot. In fact, it is a great big answer to prayer that he will not be running for President.
I guess there is one thing Donald Trump accomplished for us- Obama’s birth certificate. As I stated in my article, “Mr. Obama FINALLY Presents His Birth Certificate“, I believe Mr. Trump being so vocal and insistent on this issue forced Obama’s hand. Just to re-state the obvious from my previous article, this birth certificate could very well be a fake. At this point it’s a mute point. My only real question that remains in this issue is why did it take so long?
Now that I think about it, maybe that was “The Donald’s” goal all along. Maybe he just used the free publicity to force Obama’s hand on this issue. Donald Trump had absolutely nothing to lose in this. He said the things publicly that many of us wish our elected officials would say.
The one thing Donald Trump had going for him is that he was not afraid to say what he was thinking. I think this is one of the main reasons why he had a bit of a following- those hoping he would indeed run for President. If only all of the other candidates running for office would follow in his footsteps, say what they mean and mean what they say rather than playing political games, this country would be in much better shape!
One thing we can say for certain- Donald Trump was not playing politics. I guess the more appropriate term would be he was playing America!
Maybe that’s the title of his next reality show- “The Apprentice: Playing America For A Fool“!
Or will it be, “The Apprentice: The Search For The Birth Certificate“.
Tune in to your local NBC station this fall season!
So any bets on who may be next to throw in the towel?
